Grading

The total grade for the course is the weighted average of the grades of all the exams in which one participates:

If one takes part only in the final exam:

Intermediate Exam:25 %                                                                                                        
Final Exam:75%

 

If one takes part only in the supplementary exam:

Intermediate Exam:25 %                                                                                                                    
Supplementary Exam:75%

 

If one takes part in both the final and the supplementary exam, the better grade from either final or supplementary will be selected.

 

Intermediate Exam:25 %                                                                    
Final Exam:75%                        OR                       Supplementary Exam: 75%

 

For passing, the weighted average must be better than 4.1. As an exception to the rules above, the following combinations of results are sufficient for passing (with a grade of at least 4.0), even if the weighted average is worse than 4.1:

  • 4.0 or better in the intermediate exam, and
    4.0 or better in at least one of the final and supplementary exams
  • 5.0 in the intermediate exam, and
    3.7 or better in at least one of the final and supplementary exams
